It’s a reality. PUBG, renamed Battlegrounds Mobile India, will be releasing on mobile devices in India very soon, with a special esports eco-system and exclusive in-game events only for Indian users, according to a statement released by South Korean video game developer Krafton.
Yes, finally the wait is over, as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile, one of the world’s most famous games, has returned to India with a new name and a fresh look.
Krafton confirmed the return of PUBG by releasing a video teaser for the new game, stating that it will no longer be licenced in India by Chinese firm Tencent Games.
According to Krafton, the exclusive Battlegrounds Mobile India, which will be released only in Indian markets, will provide a premium, AAA multiplayer gaming experience while also complying with Indian laws and regulations. For your information, India is PUBG’s largest market, with over 175 million downloads, accounting for a quarter of all downloads worldwide but it was banned due to Chinese investment.
